Both car park options were only a short walk away. Our room was nice and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. We...

Stayed for two nights in early December, for a family wedding. We were welcomed warmly, and well looked after for the holiday. Our room was comfortable, clean and well equipped, with an ensuite bathroom and shower, one of the nice touches was the fridge on the landing with small bottles of fresh milk which was much better than the usual...

From my initial telephone booking, to the moment we checked out, the customer service we received from all members of staff was excellent. We stayed in room 6 and were pleased with the...

I don't usually leave reviews of hotels... But on leaving St denys I felt I should tell others of the exceptional service and wonderful stay we had here. We booked the hotel as it was only a few minutes walk right into the centre, had free parking and free WiFi. When we got there, the staff offered to take our...

Just returned from a very pleasant stay at The St Denys. Extremely friendly and professional staff greeted us and looked after us the whole stay. The room was nicely decorated with good furnishings as was the bathroom. Breakfasts were fantastic and a perfect start to the day. Blackpudding yum. One gripe was the un runny poached eggs but rapidly forgotten....
